My Chest of Draws – Pencil sketches by Dr David G Hay
Pencils are carefully removed from the container, and laid out on the far side of the workplace, points to the top. And the order is specific! The softer pencils, the 6Bs, 4Bs, 2Bs always on the left of the line-up. Then the mixed hardeners, the humble HBs in the centre; then on the right, the line and point drawers, the Hs and Fs with all their subtle tones ready to be transferred to the image as it begins to take shape on the paper.
A5, 44 pencil sketches, 97 pages.
